High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles The Vendidad or Videvdat
is a collection of texts within the greater compendium of the
Avesta. However, unlike the other texts of the Avesta, the Vendidad
is an ecclesiastical code, not a liturgical manual.The name of the
texts is a contraction of the Avestan language V -Da v -D ta,
"Given Against the Daevas (Demons)," and as the name suggests, the
Vendidad is an enumeration of various manifestations of evil
spirits, and ways to confound them. According to the divisions of
the Avesta as described in the Denkard, a 9th century text, the
Vendidad includes all of the 19th nask, which is then the only nask
that has survived in its entirety.
